The present town largely consists of land along or within the boundaries of Kenosha, and it is slated to become part of Kenosha by 2035.[2][3][4]

As of 2018, the town of Somers had an estimated population of 1,097,[5] compared to a population of 9,597 at the 2010 census,[6] prior to incorporation of the village of Somers.
